This week, Simran sits down with Bart Edes, the Asian Development Bank's Representative of the North American Office. Simran and Bart talk through his background in international development before diving into the exciting mission the ADB pursues.
Bart is trying to address the lack of financial access in Asia by providing capital to small businesses and entrepreneurs, but he's also focused on helping the most at-risk populations and closing the gaps in infrastructure that present barriers to developing communities. Simran and Bart also think about ways to free up capital for socially necessary projects that are not attractive to investors.
